"heats never burns
Delivering pure, clean vapor. Since Pax does not heat to combustion there is no smoke nor secondhand smoke."

Sounds like marketing bullshit to me. If something is already combusting it doesn't need additional heat added. fire triangle (heat, fuel, oxygen) and all that.

Unless they just mean warm, fluffy updrafts that smell good. (How's that for a perfect set SDH?)

Which takes us back to the combustion marketing bullshit thingie....

They have had these since at least 1990. I used one with the original inventor (also a Deadhead) in Amsterdam on the street outside the Hash Info Museum. He was adamant about the healthful aspects of the device. Carcinogens are produced by the burning of the carbon based matter, this achieves a specific Temp where the essential oils are turned to vapor and the other material does not achieve the temp required to combust. Many are in use today around the globe.

Competing against the world's largest company is a fool's paradise. I like his Eco 50s Buick much better. Plus, I love Neil, but having experienced the sound quality at his shows and on some of his albums, I question his judgment in this area.

Oh it certainly isn't bullshit. Never been a big fan of vaporizers though. Releasing a huge cloud of smoke is part of the enjoyment for me, but vaps certainly come in handy when trying to be discreet. People will just think you burnt some popcorn! (that's what it smells like).
